Dear Facebook

The prompt at WriteTribe this week is to write a letter to a friend.


Write Tribe




 Dear Facebook,

Thanks for always being there for me even when I’ve had a bad day or the big grey menopausal cloud of doom has been hovering over me. You’re always there for me 24/7. You don’t judge or criticize me and are a good listener.

I appreciate how I can come to you at anytime and express how I’m feeling, be creative, share a few jokes and connect with others. You have introduced me to some wonderful friends (even furry ones) and for that I am very grateful. I’ve even met some of these Facebook friends in person which I think is the best thing ever.

My one complaint would be that you do like to take up all my time when I should be doing other more productive tasks. You like to distract me when I should be focused on other things but just like a good piece of chocolate, you tempt me. It’s easy to be with you and I don’t have to think too much. We’re comfortable together, right?

I don’t like to be critical, but I do wish you’d stop changing your appearance so much as I like you the way you are. When you keep changing, I find it hard to figure you out. Maybe you have identity issues. I get it. Things change and you're trying to keep up. I get that, too.

I do find that sometimes you pretend and aren’t always what you appear to be. You can deceive me on occasion which isn’t very nice. I dislike fakes and don’t like it when you act that way. Why can’t you be honest and up front? When you act that way, I start to question your motives and intentions.

And I don’t really like that side of you that pursues financial gain. Money isn’t everything, you know.

Anyhow, I am grateful that you are always there for me any time of day like a true good friend should be and I do appreciate it.

Hope we’ll be friends for many years to come. Tell your friend Mark that I say hello.

Love Cat

  1. I was wondering why no one wrote a letter to FB. The "bestest" friend to everyone these days. Nice one. :)
